After Virat Kohli, Gautam Gambhir’s heated argument, Harbhajan Singh offered to negotiate peace, saying he would try to get Kohli and Gambhir to stick together after IPL 2023
Harbhajan Singh offered to mediate peace between Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir. The two legendary batsmen faced off in Royal Challengers Bangalore’s win over Lucknow Super Giants at Ekana Stadium on Monday. Kohli and Gambhir also locked horns in 2013, and on Monday the two got involved in another heated argument.
It was the biggest talking point after RCB’s 18-point win, as Kohli first came up against Naveen-ul-Haq in the 17th, after which he again had a war of words with the Afghan pacemaker after the match ended as the two teams exchanged pleasantries.

According to a report by PTI, an eyewitness who was present at the time on the pitch when the brawl unfolded revealed that Virat and Gambhir had clashed, with Gambhir warning the former RCB skipper not to say anything to his players who the LSG mentor considered his “family”. Kohli then responded to Gambhir and told him to keep his “family” at bay.
The situation almost boiled out of proportion before Amit Mishra and the others stepped in to separate them. Harbhajan Singh posted a video on his YouTube channel on Tuesday urging Kohli and Gambhir to come out in peace, while the legendary spinner himself issued a new apology to S. Sreesanth for the infamous slap gate incident.

Following their brawl, the trio of Kohli, Gambhir and Naveen were heavily fined by the BCCI, although legendary fly-half Sunil Gavaskar demanded a harsher punishment, suggesting a few-match suspension to ensure that such an incident will never be repeated.
